RME updates the popular HDSPe AIO sound card with ADI-2 Pro level conversion, powerful new headphone amplifier, and SteadyClock FS.
RME introduces the HDSPe AIO Pro PCI Express interface card, the successor to the popular HDSPe AIO.
The Pro version provides professional users in the fields of studio and broadcast with the same high channel count, as well as analogue/digital input and output variety, of the HDSPe AIO.
In terms of technical features RME has completely reworked the HDSPe AIO Pro, defining the current state-of-the-art in PCI Express cards.
The HDSPe AIO Pro features a total of 30 channels (14 input, 16 output), each with a maximum of 24 bit/192 kHz. This PCI Express audio interface is an all-in-one solution, offering analogue stereo inputs and outputs, an additional headphone output, plus ADAT, SPDIF, AES/EBU and MIDI I/O. Like its predecessor, all in- and outputs can be used simultaneously.
The RME HDSPe AIO Pro is based on the reference processors (AK5572 and AK4490) derived from the award-winning RME ADI-2 Pro AD/DA converter, whilst the analogue input range also uses the same circuit design of the ADI-2 Pro (+24 / +19 / +13 / +4 dBu).
In addition, RME has enhanced the outputs with additional reference levels (balanced: +24 / +19 / +13 / +4 dBu; unbalanced: +19 / +13 / +4 / -2 dBu), allowing for even more versatile integration into a wide range of professional audio systems. A dedicated attenuator in the output section results in an increased signal-to-noise ratio, along with a lower output impedance at low reference levels.
SteadyClock FS – ‘FemtoSecond’ Clocking Technology
With SteadyClock FS, the HDSPe AIO Pro features RME’s latest digital clocking and jitter rejection technology. Based on a femtosecond clock (accurate to 10-15, or one quadrillionth of a second), SteadyClock FS reduces the intrinsic jitter when converting from and to analogue over all digital formats to a new all-time low.
Transparent Headphone Output
A further highlight of the HDSPe AIO Pro is the newly developed, powerful and extremely transparent headphone output. Thanks to a dedicated mute relay, the HDSPe AIO Pro doesn’t suffer from unwanted noise, ‘crackling’ or ‘pops’ during computer startup.
This is true for the all of the analogue outputs (headphone, XLR and RCA), and at all switchable output levels.
TotalMix – Comprehensive monitoring and mixing control
Like all RME audio interfaces and sound cards, the HDSPe AIO Pro features RME’s TotalMix software mixer, providing full control over all analogue and digital inputs and outputs.
Any combination of audio channels can be combined and routed to the outputs as submixes, allowing for complete flexibility when creating monitor mixes or routing to external audio devices.
In addition, network control over the HDSPe AIO Pro is possible via the free TotalMix Remote app, and an additional set of audio analysis tools comes courtesy of RME’s DIGICheck software.
The RME HDSPe AIO Pro PCI Express card will be available from September 2020.
